Fractures and injuries to bones, joints and ligaments are managed by Orthopaedic surgeons. Slater and Gordon Lawyers have won compensation in many clinical negligence claim cases arising from Orthopaedic injuries.
Sometimes fractures can be missed by surgeons and or doctors. This may be because they carry out inadequate examinations, or because fractures are missed on X-rays. Sometimes mistakes are made by inexperienced doctors in Accident & Emergency departments.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers have secured clinical negligence compensation for victims of Orthopaedic injuries such as:
• Fractured hip left undiagnosed for two weeks.
• Fractured vertebrae not diagnosed due to no X-rays.
• Fractured scaphoid missed as wrong X-rays were done.
• Fractured talus missed although clearly visible on X-rays.
• Doctors failed to diagnose a fractured patella because they did not arrange for any X-rays.
Orthopaedic injuries and other medical problems often arise when surgery is done inadequately. Recent medical negligence cases won by Slater and Gordon Lawyers include:
• Hip replacement claims where the wrong component was used and/or the component was not fitted correctly.
• Knee replacement claims where the prosthesis was not fitted correctly.
• Ligament reconstruction operations where grafts were wrongly placed.
• Bunion surgery and operations to straighten toes done badly.
